BIOGRAPHY: Former Texas transfer who moved into the starting lineup two years ago. Senior totals were 27/6.5/5.5 after 34/7/3 as a junior. Tough, hustling defensive end with solid size/speed numbers.
POSITIVES: Quick changing direction, moves well laterally and collapses to the sidelines defending the run. Works his hands throughout the action, chases hard to get involved and possesses a short-area burst of speed.
NEGATIVES: Marginally strong at the point and handled by tight ends. Not fast off the edge and shows minimal pass-rushing skills.
ANALYSIS: A prospect who looks better than he plays, Pittman has never met the expectations of NFL scouts. Offers the frame to add bulk and has shown skill in run defense.
